Well, I just configured my dream iMac Pro configuration. It would be nice to have final cut pro renderings a bit smoother or have mathematica be able to deal with larger simplicial complexes. Well, there is only one little problem: the order of magnitude of cash for that baby ... t.co/QD8MkoGJyq
Correction: the house is of course the border of Arlington and Winchester.Lexington is behind the hills. By the way, the information about the Entropy house is from the excellent book "A mind at Play: How Claude Shannon invented the Information Age" by Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman t.co/iCaSoKDFEG
Just at the border of Arlington and Lexington is the Entopy house, in which Claude Shannon (the father of information theory resided). Here is a view onto the house from the other side of the Mystic lakes. Shannon used to run often around the lakes. t.co/3FLYS01lHY
While running around the Mystic lakes today, I photographed a painting
by Thomas Dahill from 2016. It is a photocopy exhibited at
the beach near the lake just at the original canal location.
The Dahill painting shows the canal from an eagle perspective
A week ago, GIMPS found the 50th Mersenne Nr: 2^77232917 -1. Contratulations!
It is fun to predict the size of the next one using linear regression.
According to statistics, the Mersenne primes come currently a bit too fast. t.co/kbzb0NO4S1
Google now lists the mathematician George Green
first when asking for "George Green". But it lists the photo
of a George B. Green (1822-1851) listed here
t.co/03Q3Abt3PT and not
to George Green, 1783-1841. Still no picture of the mathematician! t.co/yhoBWeM9VR
Just played around with it a bit. Leads to strange "worlds"
Me: Hey Siri: who is George Green?
Siri: age 21, Dewsbury, England, 174 Lb.
middle fielder ... As a mathematician, I had
not expected that. But not all hope is lost: "bing",
"yandex" and "duck duck go" list the mathematician first. t.co/s7iCkyEi8x
I never realized how marvellous the turkeys feathers are. Some visited recently Harvard. We have lots of them In Arlington too (we live close to the Turkey Hill in Arlington). They also have a nice necklace:
